Header navigation with link category dropdowns not working in IE (2 posts)

    He there. I thought I came up with the perfect sollution for my ever more cluttering header navigation. The result is exactly what I wanted... In Firefox. When you hover your mouse over a navigation link (the link category name), a dropdown with further choices appears which you can choose from. I already noticed that these dropdowns didn't work on my phone (Opera mini) which was something to look into some time, but now I noticed that they also don't work in IE (I'm testing 3.1) which is more serious. I use an old-fashioned theme that doesn't support menus (besides, I played around and haven't been able to figure out how to make what I have now), but it there a way to make these link titles 'clickable' so that they work again in IE/Browzar/Opera (I haven't tried Chrome)?

    Alright, the plot thickens. Currently I'm at work when I have to work with IE 7 and my navigation works just fine. I'm not sure what IE I have at home, but it came with Windows 7 and I believe I have the latest Browzar. Is that dropdown perhaps done with some kind of Javascript or something? This is the code from my header.php
    <li><?php wp_list_bookmarks('title_li=&categorize=1') ?></li>
    And this I use to style it:
    .linkcat h2 {font-size:1em;}
    and

    #nav a, .linkcat h2 {
    	color: #B65D41;
    	display: block;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	padding: 0em;
    	}

    Tips are more than welcome.
    Actually I would prefer the dropdown to appear on clicking, not on mouseover anyway.
